|bheintz||Having a TWIC has sped up the processing time of renewing your license - I got my new MMC in 28 days. (Merchant Marine Credential: combination of a Merchant Marinerís Document (MMD), a Merchant Marinerís License (License), a Certificate of Registry (COR), and an International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Endorsement.)|

I'm a professional mariner with a TWIC card, I've had it for about a year now. I recently went aboard my vessel in Port Fourchon, La. and I showed my card to the 300 pound lady gate guard. This bright spark looked at my TWIC and said "whut dis is?".
I feel lots safer!
